Sustainability

Daniel P. Coffey & Associates, Ltd. for over 25 years has worked towards a sustainable, energy conscious architecture. Initially this was accomplished through careful siting of projects and use of naturally available and local materials. This approach is also a part of our considerable emphasis on urban revitalization coupled with adaptive re-use, rehabilitation and preservation of existing buildings. Improved  re-use of existing buildings and attachment to existing city infrastructure are the most environmentally and energy conserving way to occupy and use a building.

More recently we have advocated both the “US Green Building Council” and its “LEED” standards as well as the less proscriptive standards promulgated through the “Nantucket Principles” of the “Design Futures Council” that includes Mr. Coffey in its leadership.  Additionally the firm advocates transit linked development and currently about 80% of its projects are situated in walking distance of mass transit.
